Paul McCartney's school notebook with teacher's critical red ink comments in the margins is expected to fetch £10,000 (more than $ 13,000) at an auction at Omega Auctions in Newton-Le-Willows. It also features a doodle of a man smoking on the back cover, Daily Mail reported.

The 22-page notebook contains five essays, including the essays that McCartney wrote on novels such as Thomas Hardy's (1840-1928) "The Return Of The Native" and John Milton's (1608-1674) "Paradise Lost".

The teacher of English literature Alan Durband wrote notes in the margins to the teenager: "I'd answer the question first before challenging its truth." 

A family based in Liverpool, who want to remain anonymous, are putting the item up for sale. They say they "have had the book for as long as they can remember."

A George Harrison cassette, containing previously unheard tracks written and recorded in 1978, estimated to fetch £3,000 is also going up for auction.
